About us

The GWP plastics laboratory – a laboratory of the Gesellschaft für Werkstoffprüfung mbH: In our plastics laboratory, which is geared towards the automotive industry, materials and components are tested for their quality. According to accredited procedures, we analyse the composition of polymers, determine the mechanical material characteristics or carry out entire component tests. In the environmental simulation, stresses caused by sunlight, temperature changes, humidity or salt spray are simulated. A further service is the characterisation of the resistance of plastic surfaces to mechanical abrasion, stone chipping or chemical media such as solvents, oils, sweat or sunscreen.

If desired, our services are not only limited to the reporting of material-technical characteristic values. We provide targeted support for your projects, accompany developments and are there for you in an advisory capacity. We evaluate cases of damage, point out correlations in materials and manufacturing and offer profitable solutions.
Our customers benefit from our wide range of methods, hybrid service bundles and a unique network. In this way, synergies can be used optimally and our customers benefit from a timely, flexible and economic partnership.
